Pre-School - Daisy

Welcome to everyone joining Daisy Class this year. We hope you will have fun with us this year and on this page we will tell you about the different topics we will be working on and how you can get involved.

Autumn first half term.  

This terms topic is called 'Here comes Autumn'  In it we will be looking at colours and how nature changes as Autumn develops.

We will be concentrating on one story  Brown Bear Brown Bear by Bill Martin and Eric Carle. It is a lovely repetitive story that the children will pick and start to join in with very quickly. As the term progresses we will look at the colours of leaves and the animals who we might see. 



Autumn 2 Topic – What do you celebrate?

This term we are very lucky as there are lots of festivals to celebrate. We will be looking at Diwali Bonfire night then moving into Christmas. If you have anything you would like to share with us about your celebrations at home please come and see us in Pre School


Here are some useful websites to visit:

Spring 1 Topic - Winter Wonderland

With the weather turning colder this is a great topic to look at all things snowy. Keeping warm is key so the children will be set a challenge of putting their own coats on and taking them off. Our story is all about Spots Snowy Day. The children will become familiar with it quickly and there is lots of new vocabulary in it. 


Here are some useful websites to visit:

Picture 1 we designed our own hats and scarves

We enjoyed celebrating Chinese New Year by making a pig mask and having Chinese food for our snack


February half term challenge

Now the children are very good at taking their own coats off and hanging them up it is time for phase 2!   We would like the children to be able to put their own coat on. It doesn't matter if they can not do it up. Good luck 

Spring term 2  Topic

For the first part of this term we will be looking at a story called Goat goes to Playgroup. We will be encouraging the children to tell us all the things they love about coming to school and some of the new things they would like to try. There may things that they are not sure of or worried about when they come to school and we can help them with this. 

There are the important celebrations of Mothers Day and Easter. Hopefully the weather will start to warm and we can get all our vegetable and flower seeds planted too.

If you need to increase or change your child's sessions for after Easter please speak to me and I will do my best to give you the sessions you need but we are very full  Thank you Mrs Dalton
Don't forget to pop in and book your parents evening consultation appointment with your child's key worker for next week.  If you are unable to get in please just give us a call and we can sort it out for you. Regards Mrs Dalton

To everyone for supporting our Easter fund raising, you raised £67 which combined with the cake sale and Christmas Fayre fund raising gives us enough money to get everything we need to make our nature and growing area.

Once everything is in place we will invite you to come along and have a look.

Have a lovely Easter break and we will see you back in school on Tuesday 23rd April


Update on our garden project

Thanks to your wonderful efforts with the Easter fundraising we have now purchased everything we need for our garden project. It is only the bird table that we couldn't get but hope fully we can solve that problem soon. The children have filled up the bird feeds and are keep a close eye out for visitors. The herbs are planted and the child are watering them daily.  Tomatoes to are in. The children planted their sunflower seeds this week and they are growing at an amazing rate. The pumpkins are making good progress, if anyone knows of a good feed for them please let me know as the bigger the better.  We just have the vegetable trugg to sort out and them we will invite you to come and have a look at our efforts and share cake of course! When the rain stops I will take some photos and put them on for you to see.

Welcome back from a weeks break. Our topic this term is  'Here comes Summer' We would like to have a photo board showing all the different ways you and your family enjoy Summer time. It could be eating ice cream wearing shorts and t shirts  having a picnic going on holiday splashing in water I'm sure you can think of loads more.  You can send a photo in with your child or email me at school jane.dalton@balliolschool  

WOW  all our plants are growing very quickly now and we have guests in the bug hotel!!

We are starting transition visits for those children who will be joining Poppy Class in September this week so your child may come home and tell you they have been to a new class. If you have any questions about the transfer please just pop in and see me.Thanks Mrs Dalton

At the moment they don't have names but if the children would like to suggest 2 names and put them on a pieces of paper we will gather then up put them in  a hat and draw 2 out on July 1st.  The white one has an orange spot on its head and the gold one has a black one.
